Could be..
They do force other bulbs like paper whites
and hyacinths and such...
So, why not??

I've never done them, but worth a try...

During chinese new year, people will force these bulbs that look like mini daffidols, white petals and orangy center...they smell like jasmine! anyways, I'm pretty sure you can force it if you want the colour now, or you can just plant it in the ground and let it bloom on its own later. In a few years, you shoulod be getting a few more blooms, by then you can probably divide/split the bulblets that come off the main bulb!

paperwhites are daffodils aka narcissis. and can be "forced" indoors. the plants that kenny mentions are also in the same family. very nice flowers and one of my favorites!
